Academy to Host 27th Annual Golf Tournament Honoring Longtime Supporter Eric Hanson

Are you looking for a good excuse to hit the green this spring? Look no further than the Academy of Notre Dame’s 27th Annual Golf Tournament on Monday, May 13. Whether you play under par or spend most of the time in the sand, golfing for a good cause is always fun.


The tournament, held once again at the beautiful Vesper Country Club in Tyngsboro, will be played in tribute to Eric Hanson who was a beloved Academy parent and volunteer who contributed immensely to the school and community. 


“Eric knew that the golf tournament is a key fundraiser for the Academy and greatly contributed to its success for many years,” says Donna Acquaviva, Tournament Co-Chair. “He was an accomplished golfer who never missed the tournament. In recognition of all he did for the Academy and in honor of his enduring legacy, we dedicate this year’s Tournament to his memory.”


Registration for the tournament is still open as well as some sponsorship opportunities for businesses that would like to promote their goods and services. “Many of our sponsorships include registrations to play so that sponsors can look forward to a fun day of golf while at the same time support our mission to educate the whole person for life through a curriculum rooted in spiritual formation and academic excellence," says Lauren Marquis, Director of Institutional Advancement. “With the generosity of players, sponsors and other benefactors, proceeds from the tournament will help provide a ‘margin of excellence’ and ensure a bright future for all Academy students.”


Additionally, the tournament will offer a chance to win a one-year lease on a new car and opportunities for golfers to win championship prizes, various raffles, and honors for closest to the pin, longest drive, and a chipping contest. Registration for the tournament will open at 11:30 a.m. and will begin with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The cost to participate includes tournament fees, lunch, dinner, and golf cart.
